The following is an excerpt of a conversation between The Commish and Mrs Commish on April 16th, 2015.
Mrs Commish: Good luck tonight
Commish: Thanks, but there’s no way in Hell we’re going to win tonight.
Mrs Commish: Really? So are you just going to skip the game and head straight to the Clubhouse?
Commish: I probably should, but I can’t. Besides, where there’s a will, there’s a way. (I only said this to sound upbeat)
Those are the exact words between me and the wife before the Championship game. (Yes, it’s been a while since that game, but this J-O-B thing has really become a pain in the ass)
Anway, I was half right. Where there’s a will, there’s sometimes a way. And on this occasion, and with the help of Matt Casey’s disfunctional skate blade (for half of the game), there was a way.
So it is with great pride, and still a bit of surprise, I give to you the 2014-2015 HBHL Champions.
Stone Wall Faulkner, Matt Quail, Brian Kobelski, Kevin Drew, Brian Shea, Matt Kiley, Dave Jagger, Doug Gallacher, Bob Landry, Garrett Berube, Ed Hunter, and yours truly Eric Lareau.
It wasn’t easy, and it wasn’t pretty, but when the game ended, the Red Team edged Gray by one goal.
Game. Set. Match.
For the record, a couple of firsts occured on April 16th.
1. The Commish won his own hockey leagues cup for the first time.
2. Matt Casey not only went to the Clubhouse, but he closed it. Nice “one and done” as we call it, Case!
Good time boys.
